Changing body paragraph font size

    This will most likely sound like an unbelievably stupid question to most of you, but I am completely new to CSS and have been unsuccessful in trying to figure this out on my own by reading and researching, so I must be missing some key information.

    It has become part of my job to manage and maintain this site (, in which I unfortunately have absolutely zero previous experience, and would greatly appreciate any help that you would be able to give. The one thing that I am trying to figure out how to do is simply change a paragraph’s font size. (The specific paragraph being the one on the hom page beginning with: “Our next meeting…”). I am using the Twenty Eleven theme, and need this body paragraph to stand out from the rest. (My boss does not seem to like making it a different color, or bolding it, which I could do easily, but instead wants it to be a larger font). Is there a way to do this, or possibly even a specific tag that I could put into my CSS editor that would make this happen?

    Again, any help would be greatly appreciated, and I apologize for asking such a silly question. I’m completely out of my element!

    <p style="font-size: 100%;">

    And then put this at the end of the paragraph:
